but funny as it is, the trickery is not why it became notorious today, and it's not why they put it on the front page of the "new york times." it's because out of one, two, three, four, five, six, seven, eight, nine, ten, eleven senior staff members advising the president in this photo, only one of the people barely in this photo is a woman. last month president obama held a press conference to announce he is nominating senator john kerry to replace hillary clinton as secretary of state. so john kerry not susan rice. earlier this week, the president announcing that former republican senator chuck hagel was his pick to be the next secretary of defense. so chuck hagel and not, say, michelle flournoy, the very highly regarded undersecretary of defense for policy. no word yet on who president obama has in mind to be his next secretary of labor, but hilda solis announced just this afternoon that she has handed in her resignation.
